2018 local Remembrance events – let’s make a list – can you help please?

Brownhills always puts on a sombre, dignified event. Local children paid their respects in 2015, as captured by the good folk of St. James Church.

This is just a quick request for help – in past years, we have crowdsourced from readers a list of local Remembrance parades and events taking place throughout the area, that was popular and useful to many of the readership – last year I left it a little late so this year I want to be better prepared.

I’d like to match last year’s list if I can.

There are a huge range of local services taking place, although some parades may be changed a little due to well-publiscised policing issues.

If you contribute details I’ll wrap them all up into a big post later in the month before Remembrance Sunday.

If you can supply details for any local event in Walsall or South Staffordshire, please comment here or mail me. I know people tend to travel to their home Remembrance event, and we have a wide audience, so stuff in the wider area is very much welcome.

I’d also like readers to take photos of their local events if they can and I’ll feature them here; particularly after photos of Brownhills, Walsall Wood and Norton if possible.

If you’d rather, feel free to mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.

    Rushall service will be held at the Memorial stone in the village outside the old library building. We also have a new memorial for the 100 yr anniversary. Meet at 10.50.
    We will be opening up the building for refreshments afterwards if anybody would like to stay.
